Weekend Recap

                                          
I spent a great day in the sewing room on Saturday!  I finished the quilting on the jelly roll quilt. 
It is just what I envisioned!  Curvy, graphic lines of the quilting contrast nicely with the strips.
I sewed the binding right on it and it is ready for use on the couch by my long husband!
When I was in NY in August, Mom showed me a quilt-covered journal gifted to her.  I wanted to make one!  Using some leftovers on the jelly roll quilt, I did just that.  Then I made another!  This was a very nice project on several levels! 
 One of these I will keep, the other is for a friend that hits a big birthday today !

  1. I LOVE the quilting, especially how the lines add dimension and interest to the solid-fabric strips. Perfection!

  2. I really like the journal book covers! I keep a journal book by my bed so I know how important they are.
